This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in October of 2019. A tube sled offers a bit more cushioning than hard plastic saucers, and if the bottoms aren't specially treated, they can be a safer, slower choice for young riders. The hard-bottomed options are designed for speed, and should only be used when there's sufficient clearance for stopping at the end of the hill. In either case, adult supervision is always wise. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best sledding tube on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 12, 2019:

Gliding down the hill in a tube sled can be a lot more comfortable than the face-first bumpy action of a plastic or wooden option. We decided to include the best choices in the slower, more gentle rides as well as a few with specially coated bottoms for more adventurous riders who crave the speed of the plastic saucers.

The Bradley Multi-Rider Deluxe and the Windrider High Speed both are designed with speed in mind and are a better choice for adult sledders. Both are the priciest options on the list, but the materials that make the bottoms go faster also make them more resistant to punctures and holes, so they'll last longer.

These two sleds along with the Bayka Snow Tube also come with sturdy pull-ropes that make it easier for adults and kids alike to get these bulky tubes back up the hill. While it has become popular to attach these straps to the back of a snowmobile or other motorized vehicle, this is a dangerous practice not recommended by manufacturers as the tube can easily slam into the back of the vehicle when it comes to a stop.

While the Jasonwell Reindeer is also recommended for use as a pool toy, most manufacturers do not, so its important follow the different guidelines for each model.
